On Tuesday 20th November, we will be hosting a Backchat special – The Legislative Council Kowloon West Geographical Constituency By-election Forum. Before the by-election takes place on 25th November, candidates will join this special live broadcast from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday and answer questions submitted in advance from you. What are the key issues for you? What do you expect the to-be-elected legislator do in Legislative Council?
On Monday's 123 Show, we hear about the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation's performance of the musical Fame, with choreographer Giselle Liu and actors Michaela McCoy and Eimear Burns. After 2, Nathan Solia joins us to talk about health and fitness. After 2.30, following last week’s episode on used cooking oil, Suzanne Cheung will be speaking to Marcy Trent Long on Trash Talk about waste automobile oil recycling. After 2.45, we find out about the Rainbow Project, one of the 13 beneficiaries of this year's Operation Santa Claus. (1:15pm-3pm, email@example.com, facebook: www.facebook.com/NoreenMirRTHKradio3)
Geopolitical issues are on the radar screen this week. Chinese President Xi Jinping and US Vice-President Mike Pence were so at odds over trade and security issues at the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit over the weekend that it failed to issue a joint communique for the first time in its history. In the UK, Prime Minister Theresa May is attempting to fend off a potential leadership challenge and garner support for her Brexit plan, which appears to have united both Brexiteers and EU supporters in opposition against it. Also in Europe, the European Commission is expected to give a further response to Italy’s 2019 budget plans which breach EU spending rules.
On Tuesday’s Money Talk our guests are Connie Bolland, Founder and Chief Economist of Economic Research Analysis and independent analyst Andrew Sullivan. On the phone from Tokyo with this week’s view from Japan is Naoyuki Yoshino, Dean & CEO of the Asian Development Bank Institute.
Christmas is a time to give! The launch ceremony for Operation Santa Claus 2018 was held on November 13 at the Parade Ground at Tai Kwun, in Central. This year's theme is Spread some Joy this Christmas. Thirteen good causes will benefit from this year’s community-wide charity campaign.
Congratulations to our popular colleague Steve James, who’s been declared top on-air personality in the main Asia-wide broadcasting awards, the ABU Prizes. Steve has been hailed as number one for his weekday afternoon show by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union – which has a network of members that can reach 3 billion people across the region! It’s great recognition for Steve, who’s been with Radio 3 for the past 17 years. As well as hosting his show, The Steve James Afternoon Drive – to give it its full title – with its comic social observations, parody songs and social media engagement, he’s also the producer of Vintage Chart Toppers, and works his magic on lots of the Radio 3 trails and theme tunes that you hear every day. In all, RTHK won four top prizes in the seven radio categories – an unprecedented success – the others coming in the documentary, news reporting and community service announcement sections.
